Two area people were injured in a single-vehicle rollover wreck on I-40 late last night, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Angelica Welch, 25, of Checotah was westbound on the interstate when she apparently fell asleep and left the roadway to the right in her 2006 Dodge Ram pickup about nine miles west of Checotah, the patrol reported.

Her passengers were injured, but Welch refused treatment at the scene.

Garrett Harness, 24, of Sulphur Springs, Texas was transported to Saint Francis Hospital in Muskogee with internal trunk injuries. Stephanie Minyard-Rogers, 52, of Henryetta was flown by helicopter to St. Francis Tulsa with unknown injuries.
